Threaded Needle

Population259 million


The Armed Republic of Threaded Needle is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 259 million Needleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 26.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Threaded Needlean economy, worth 26.1 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 100,655 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the Threaded Needle City River. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Threaded Needle's national animal is the bison, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Threaded Needle is ranked 111,744th in the world and 5,287th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,610.64 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
